Whakapau kaha – to be better than before.
Dear Parents and Caregivers
We are very concerned with the growing number of children being sent home with conjunctivitis this term.  If your child complains of sore, red or runny eyes we urge you to please seek medical advice immediately. Conjunctivitis is contagious and no child should attend school until they have been treated correctly.  Once treatment starts a child may return to school after 24 hours.  If you are contacted by the school we do request that you arrange the collection of your child as soon as possible, as we have no choice but to isolate them to avoid futher spread across our school.
If you are concerned or would like further information please refer to the Ministry of Health link below.
